Researchers: AI could improve medicines, vaccines

Researchers are using new artificial intelligence tools to change how we might stop the next pandemic and a whole host of other diseases. 

David Baker, a scientist at the University of Washington, has been working toward this moment for over 30 years. 

Now, he’s harnessing AI to improve how scientists develop proteins for medicines and vaccines. 

The technology is similar to a popular online tool called Dall-E, which allows you to create pictures that have never existed before, by just describing what you want to see. 

As it turns out, this could also work for proteins.
